Re: Can anyone help me find a marriage record for Adele Maddalena Deangeli

Hi Alaska mom - I'm a bit rusty with my Italian as I did my ancestors back in 2016, but I know this feeling! I guessed that Adele would be about 20 when she married and searched in the Antenati db for her by using the name De Angelis as it is listed in the Antenati, under Roma, circa 1893 which woul...

Can you provide a different link? The link you gave us is to a Family History Center and not accessible.

Re: Emigrazione Giuseppe Acquavia - Rosa Aquino

Hi. I've done similar searches for my grandparents who came from Italy to New York in early 1900s. I was able to find an Antonio Acquavia, from Portenza, to Ellis Island, but in 1907. Perhaps you can delve more deeply into the file and see if he was visiting his relative, Giuseppe, in New York. Just...

Re: Looking for Chicco, Congedi, Ugo and Zaro surnames

Hi. Have you looked at Antenati Italian Archives? http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.it/ Give it a try. You can look directly for names or you can look by area. First names help, as well as even a guess at date of birth or death, so the database can give you information that might point to the ri...

Re: Help with family tree for Mastrorocco

Dave -
It's been awhile since I've been on these boards, but I learned so much researching my own ancestors in Italy. Have you looked at Antenati Italian Archives? Here is a link to the Mastrorocco name and region -

Re: Patrilineal vs Multilineal--RANT warning

Nick - Perhaps as a woman I could answer this. As a thorough Italian - with both Abruzzi and Sicilian roots -- my understanding and upbringing was in a patriarchal society. Perhaps this is what the article was learning toward as it mentioned that all information was contextual - based on ethnicity a...

Re: Italian Orphans

So, let me see if I understand the delineations. If both parents died, orphan. If one parent is alive and taking care of the child, but the mother is unknown, is the child considered an orphan? Or just a motherless child?

Just wondering.....

Re: Help identifying Risorgimento uniform

I hope they help. I do not speak Italian either, but some of the sites have an UnionJack flag to the upper right, that is to see an English version of the site. Other than that, there is - Google Translate https://translate.google.com/ which translates (free) web pages - Bing Translate https://www.b...

Thanks, mmogno, so it was an error that was corrected within the act. They should've used pencils so they could just erase mistakes; the writer must have been having a hard week! Glad to know that I don't have to restart this family after all...PG

Re: Ancestry.com “Hints” – Separating Facts from Junk

Thank you, rp, for posting your policies. It is far too tempting to blindly accept a hint in the excitement of thinking you have found family. And too easy. My policy is to record the names on a piece of paper (archaic, I know), and do the research – see if I can find the birth, marriage or death re...
